I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.
When driving through Bilpin, visit the cellar door of the Bilpin Cider Co. for a tasty tasting session. The ciders are made from freshly crushed hand picked apples with no added sugar, flavours or colours. Apart from the drinks, you can also purchase local honey and in-season produce from the tasting shed.
You can sample from the range of ciders at the cellar door, where the friendly staff will guide you through the tasting. The tasting session is free and even though there is no obligation to purchase, most visitors buy something. The ciders are also stocked at BWS, Dan Murphys and Ice Box Liquor.
Bilpin known as the home of the mountain apple is about 93 km west of Sydney and makes for a lovely road trip past green orchards and rolling hills. On weekends, you can order a picnic package to enjoy on the green lawns surrounding the cellar door. To ensure availability, bookings are advised - call 02 4567 0704 or email email@example.com. There is plenty of room for kids to run around, picnic blankets, games and well behaved furry family members are welcome.
On the third Sunday of the month, they hold a special event called Thirsty Third Sunday, where food vans and easy listening music add to the atmosphere. The next event is Sunday July 21 where the music is courtesy of Jacinta Laws & Andy Butler and the food offered will be a soup kitchen and bread bar.
Enjoy a drive out to Bilpin for a family day in the fresh air, enjoying the produce of the area.
